SEATTLE (AP) — By this point, Louisville resume of women’s NCAA Tournament success should have the Cardinals getting mentioned in the same breath as South Carolina, UConn and the other powers in the sport. Instead, Jeff Walz feels like the Cardinals are regularly a team picked to get bounced early in March Madness. Walz and the No. 5 seed Cardinals will play in their fifth straight regional championship game facing No. 2 seed Iowa in the Seattle 4 Regional on Sunday. Louisville’s streak of five straight Elite Eight appearances is the longest active streak in the country after UConn was beat to Ohio State. Led by star Caitlin Clark, Iowa will play in just its second regional final in the past 30 years.
